Remington 597 BL 22 Mag HB Laminated
[6581]
$518.00
by tommy b Date Added: Friday 17 February, 2012
Bought the Remington .22 mag from Buds. Excellent service, as usual. The rifle, however, is another matter. Of all the rifles Ive owned in my long life, the Remington 597 .22 mag is, by far, the worst out-of-the-box rifle product I can remember seeing. It had feed failures, jams, and bolt stoppage before battery in a large # of the rounds we attempted. The trigger had lots of creep, and had about a 1000lb trigger pull which was so bad, we couldnt even get the rifle to sight with a Leupold scope. After I did a trigger job on the hammer lockup, and polished all the receiver parts even down to having to port the firing pin channel, the rifle funtions perfectly at about a 4lb pull. On a positvie note, the stock is pristine from the factory. If you have the time and inclination to have a bunch of work done on the 597, and can get past the price of the 597, its an OK rifle. If not, do yourself a favor and stay with the Ruger 10/22. The Ruger is less money, and far more reliable.
